Schrade’s Posie Peddler is your Saratoga hometown florist. As soon as you meet the owner, Gretchen Squires, you know she loves what she does and as a fourth generation business owner, it’s in her blood!

Gretchen’s Great Grandfather Henry J. Schrade opened Shrade’s Flowers in 1910. Her Grandfather then became involved in the business along with running a greenhouse on Nelson Ave. It wasn’t until Gretchen’s father decided to open the Posie Peddler on Broadway in 1974 when she got involved in the shop.  

Growing up with flowers has always been a part of her life. Gretchen takes alot of pride being a Saratogian and owning a family legacy.

Working with Gretchen and her team is always a delight. They work very closely with our couples recommending floral options that fit their theme and budget. On the wedding day it’s very common to see Gretchen at the wedding site perfecting the centerpieces and bouquets making sure every last piece is in it’s perfect place. Stop by Posie Peddler at their 92 West Ave. location in Saratoga. You won’t regret it!
